QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Monday, May 14, 2018

Hi  Everyone!   I never saw the movie, 'Saving Private Ryan,' however my friend had seen it a number of years ago.  He was excited to share it with me, however, he left the room a number of times with tears in his eyes.  I was curious to see what that was all about so I went to YouTube and pulled up the movie...went to Google to find the phrases.   Was trying to figure out what had my friend so emotional.  And I believe that I did find the meaningful scenes and meaningful words:  (1) the cemetery scene;  (2) the scene from the bridge....  And mainly the message: "Make your life the best that you can... Earn it,  Earn it."   "Tell me I've led a great life ...Tell me I'm a good man."  And those were the words that had a hold of my friend...still...after many years...
                                                                   ~~~~~~~~~~~~

  It was here first."                                                                    ~Mark Twain

"We must each lead a way of life with self-awareness and compassions,
  to do as much as we can.  Then, whatever happens we will have no regrets."
                                                                                                    ~Vivian  Komori  

"Life becomes harder for us when we live for others,  but it also becomes
 richer and happier."                                                                 ~Albert Schweitzer

"It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins  to have
  meaning."                                                                               ~P.D. Ouspensky

Jane,

Love this one, and I find that I like most of what Mark Twain had to say, A  Thank you for this one,


"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living.  The world owes you nothing.
  It was here first."                                                                    ~Mark Twain

Morning Jane.

I like the one about planting the garden, trouble is anything I plant never grows.  Hmm, I wonder what that means?
